Saturday, to kick off Amber’s week of spring break in DC, we had girls night at Liz’s! We made specialty pizzas, and had wine and beer!
Amber brought the ingredients for my favorite pizza ever from Pies and Pints Pizzeria in Fayetteville, WV (where we go climbing at the New River Gorge). We recreated the Grape Pie! It has sliced red grapes, gorgonzola, and rosemary.
Of course I brought a beer that I was very excited to try. The Rogue XS Imperial Stout by Rogue Ales of Newport, Oregon at 11% abv.
Quite good, but a bit of a bite for me. More hoppy than I realized. Yet still smooth with hints of chocolate. Sort of bitter sweet espresso flavors. Thick and chewy. A good Russian Imperial Stout. Somewhat expensive for a big bottle, so I doubt I will be picking it up again soon.
